Two Hearts Beat As One...Happy Sweet Sixteen, Love

Happy Anniversary To My Beloved!!!

Sixteen Years of Sublime!

May 1992. Marine meets recovering sorority queen. Engaged in 7 weeks, married 10 months later. They said we'd never make it as they smiled and danced and drank their way through our wedding.

It has been (and still is) my pleasure to beat the odds those friends and family members laid on us and otherwise to irk said naysayers after all these years. Many say it is "sweet" that I'm still so "in love" with my husband, and he with me. I can't imagine life any other way. I don't just love my husband, I live my husband. We finish each others' sentences...if words are even necessary. (Usually a raised eyebrow and an answering smirk will suffice.) We email each other the same odd and obscure news stories because we know that the other one will appreciate the bizarreness of it as well as the hunt for the story. When I'm lonely and I go to pick up the phone to call, it rings. It's him.

We are 8500 miles apart at the moment, but we might as well be sitting side by side. But then I wouldn't be sitting at the computer telling you all this. I'd be snuggled up under the blankets, secured in one big arm, listening to his heart beating as I fell asleep like I do every night we're together. Just a few more months 'til summer, babe.

Say I'm a fool...

[They] say I'm not for you

But if I'm a fool for you

Oh, that's something...

P.S. We are SO going to this concert this summer in some as-yet undisclosed (and hopefully European) location!

Happy Anniversary!!

On a wholly unrelated note: I made Tuscan bread (from your Brookside Bistro recipe) the other day - Kasia and I LOVED it!!!!! Very, very, very yummy!! It is definitely going into our regular homemade bread rotation.

Kit said...

Yay!!! Did you use a cloche or make loaves? I put up a few more recipes last night, too.

The Canuck said...

Believe it or not, I baked it in a La Creuset dutch oven (or French Oven as they like to call it). It was the closest thing we have to a cloche and it worked beautifully!

I saw the new recipes - the Coke Cake is definitely going to be attempted :)

Kit said...

Excellent! I've made it in a Calphalon (tall) stock pot when the cloche was in use elsewhere. I love that recipe - so easy.

Sadly...I'm doing the South Beach-ish thing in advance of vacation in a few weeks, so no superfluous bread allowed. (Drool.....)

The Canuck said...

But think of all the yummy bread you can have after the vacation :)

Kasia said...

Kit,

The bread was so good that I asked Canuck if we could have it every day. Who wants that nasty storebought stuff once they've tasted...that...?

Ooo, vacation!...where are ya going?

Kit said...
